MDOT seeks comment on US-23 proposal; public hearing is Feb. 26

LANSING, MI – The Michigan Department of Transportation MDOT(MDOT) is seeking public comments on a recently completed Environmental Assessment (EA) for proposed improvements to US-23 between the west US-23/M-14 interchange and Silver Lake Road in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.

In addition, a formal hearing is set for Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, where MDOT will present an overview of the EA, including the alternatives considered and potential impacts and measures needed to minimize those impacts. A formal presentation will occur at 4:30 and 6 p.m. at the hearing.

Improvements to US-23 include replacing and upgrading pavement, median shoulders, bridges and entrance and exit ramps along the corridor. The EA also analyzed the effects of using upgraded shoulders, message boards and enhanced ITS technology as part of a new traffic management system to reduce congestion, improve safety and better accommodate through- traffic during peak periods.

The EA is available for review and comment through March 17. To view the document, and for information on how to submit written comments, go to:
